From The Sample Seed Shop:
"This is a fat green bean. The seeds are light with dark purple speckled in the same manner as Turkey Craw or Mayflower beans. It seems to be a pretty rare one. I picked up seeds for these from my beany friend Frank Barnett when I was in KY at the heirloom seed swap last year. They grow great and are prolific for eating, but for seed savers in short season area, getting seed to save in large quantities may be an issue.
The Melungeon people’s history is fascinating. I first heard of them watching a show on PBS. I’m not sure if it was on a show or reading an article that historians weren’t sure when the name came from. Being of Italian decent, I remember the old derogatory term for black people that is rare to hear nowadays pronounced moo-lan-john which is a slang of melanzana meaning eggplant, and that is so similar to Melungeon that I can’t think they are not related. But I am not a historian, just a history lover.
From what I can gather, not much info out there, but this bean is from Scott Co., VA. Frank Barnett though says the bean came from Wise Co., VA which is close by. It is quite likely that it traveled from one county to the other."
